INCREDIBLY well known for their Health Benefits, Berries are swiftly becoming some of the MOST POPULAR foods on the Planet today. Praised for their extremely high levels of Anti-oxidants, Anthocyanins and Vitamin C, they're fast becoming a 'must have' in a today's healthy diet.
The GREAT news is... Berries are another top option for the Home Garden.. they are usually VERY quick to bear, low maintenance, and are a really satisfying and trouble-free way to introduce kids to the LOVE of gardening. Hunting through the strawberry patch certainly beats sitting indoors in from of the ipad!!!! We always have a great selection of Strawberries, Brambles and Blueberries in stock as well as Unusual and hard to source specimens such as Goji Berries and Cranberries etc.
The requirements for growing Berries, vary as much as the Berries themselves. All will require a good amount of Sunshine, and well drained soil. Strawberries will happily survive in pots, containers or hanging baskets, although garden beds will give them a chance to really spread out and 'strut their stuff'. Most of the Brambles ( ie: Blackberries, Raspberries, Boysenberries, Loganberries, Tayberries etc) will need a bit of room, and some will need a sturdy trellis for top production and correct pruning. Blueberries and Bilberries (rare little gems that we are proud to carry in our range) are neat and tidy, and a bush or two can easily be accommodated in the home garden or, make a fabulous edible small hedge . We definitely have the LARGEST range of Berries for sale in the A.C.T. and are constantly on the lookout for new and interesting varieties. We stock a good range 'THORNLESS' varieties , which have made picking a breeze.
This year we added a wonderful and exciting NEW selection of Strawberries to our Berry range with the addition of the New release 'Bubbleberries', 'Pineberries' and 'Strasberries' , and have received some great feedback from our customers about them.
With proper preparation and selection, Berries will enable you to have a constant selection of Tasty and Nutritious fruits ripening from November through to latter part of Autumn.
